MET GALA RED CARPET ARRIVALS

The fashion event of the year is back! This year the Met Gala 2017 is honoring Comme des Garcons designer, Rei Kawakubo. All eyes are on the red carpet as the fashion elite arrive to the highly anticipated grand opening of the Costume Institute’s annual exhibition. Well known for her innovative and often architectural designs, Kawakubo has never shied away from pushing the boundaries of fashion. Following Comme des Garcons’ inception in 1973, Kawakubo’s ‘anti-fashion’ aesthetic has continuously evolved, solidifying her position as fashion icon.

One of the most interesting aspects of the Met Gala is watching how each attendee interprets the chosen theme. My favourite looks this year were worn by those unafraid to take a risk, portraying everything Rei Kawakubo represents.
